    Andy Fales...is an idiot.

    Watching Soundoff tonight.

    Andy Fales keeps saying the game Saturday night was blah. His only reasoning seems to be that we were only running the ball and haven't had a "spread explosion" yet. Meanwhile, he is jacking off about another certain game that happened Saturday night which had nothing even close to resembling a spread. The two don't really add up. I thought the 3rd quarter of the Army game was a thing of beauty. IMO -- One of the best quarters of Cyclone football in quite awhile and the way we should play every game.

    Disclaimer: Not saying Fales shouldn't be excited about the Hawkeyes. He definitely should be. It just doesn't make sense how he's negative on the Cyclones.

    I understand his position and am not bothered by it.


    NHL teams need to be added to the favorite teams section.

    I didn't really take that away from his comments at all.

    He was simply saying that it's kind of silly to spread out 5 WRs when you have a good RB and run the ball all the time. And I agree.

    Spreading the field out creates holes for your running back. The spread isn't just about throwing the ball. The spread "spreads" out the field.

    A-Rob is top ten in rushing and it's working.

    Please clarify his position for me. So, we should move to a Power I?

    This is one of the first times I've ever watched this. People actually like this?

    I have no idea what his position was. You claimed you understood, so I'm asking you to enlighten me.

    I think he's saying we shouldn't run a spread offense, but not sure

    This. Putting 5 WRs on the field makes the defense account for all 5 of them, allowing less to focus on the run. No (smart) defense will ignore wideouts in order to stop the run, they'd get burned all day through the air. Herman has said in numerous interviews that he'll make the D cover all 53 yards of field width--seems to be working for our run game.

    The only thing I understand from his is that supposedly we shouldn't run a spread offense.
    I "think" what he is trying to say is that we need to throw the ball more. And i completely agree. How much tape do BigXII defenses have now of us running the ball the whole game and AA struggling to throw it at times. We should have used the second half last night as a bit of a practice. But thats just me.

    What he was saying (in my mind) is that he is wondering where the high-powered passing attack is supposed to be. Right now ISU is somewhat one-dimensional.
